    Sadly don't have any pictures, but I can provide the specs:

    CPU: Ryzen 5 2600
    GPU: MSI RTX 2060 Gaming Z
    MoBo: MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC
    RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4-3200
    SSD: 500GB Samsung Pro Evo 860 SATA
    HDD: WD Blue 1TB
    PSU: Corsair 550W TX550M
    Case: Corsair Carbide series SPEC-DELTA RGB

    I did a tonne of research before making this build, and I'm pretty happy with the result. Runs many games at over 120 FPS easily on ultra settings, though I only have a 3 year old 1080p monitor to use with it, and I've already broken the bank enough buying all the parts. RGB looks awesome at night with the lights off, though an RGB CPU cooler would make it look even better.

    Also bought the Destiny 2 Razer Man O'War headset, as Destiny 2 was one of my main reasons for building it (what with cross-save coming later this month), as well as the Destiny 2 Goliathus mouse mat..

    Overall, what do people think? And would anyone be able to recommend some good fan coolers to replace the stock wraith cooler that came with my CPU?

    Also, this is my first ever post here, so hi!

    Not bad! :rolleyes:
    I don't like Corsair PSU. I prefer a 600W PSU for that configuratiion (EVGA for example).

    Wich case do you use?

    CPU cooler? Air or Liquid? I suggest Noctua in the first case. On liquid CPU cooler there are a lot of good options on the market.

    The case I use is the Corsair Carbide series SPEC-DELTA RGB. The page for it is here:
    https://www.corsair.com/uk/en/Categ...Tower-ATX-Gaming-Case-—-Black/p/CC-9011166-WW

    As for the CPU cooler, I would prefer to use an air cooler since they are easier to install than the liquid coolers.

    It is not true that liquid coolers are hard to install.
    Anyway, my suggestion is Noctua on Air Cooler, (note at the dimension before to buy!).

    Nice case. Is your Mobo ATX right? What about cable management using that case?

    Mobo is ATX yeah. Cable management is pretty nice with the case. Lots of space down near the power supply and around the hard drive trays to keep your unused wires etc. When fully installed everything looks pretty clean when viewed through the tempered glass side of the case. Quite happy with how it turned out

    OK thanks, i'm looking foa a new case...

    I would definitely recommend it. 4 fans preinstalled, with the 3 at the front being RGB. When powered off, the front of the case is solid black, but once on, is backlit by the fans. Looks incredible.

    I don't have the PC in front to me, it is working under the table, so nobody see at this.
    I like a good cable management cause the PC works better.
    Anyway, some RGB fan on the front maybe a good idea. :smile_:

    How much spent on the build?
    I am thinking somewhere within US$ 2 - 3 grand?
     
  10. This_Is_Ra

    This_Is_Ra New Member

    Just over £1000 with the OS. For all the parts it came to around £910

    Great setup with nice upgradability, gratz!
     
  13. Are you manual OCing your processors or are you running them stock? If you are looking air cooler I recommend the NH-D15 noctua cooler, or if you want AIO I recommend the H100i RGB Pro from Corsair. If you want to take the RGB I recommend keeping it inside of the same program for syncing your animations across your system.
